The numbers were 2, 31,32,37,70 plus the Mega Ball 25, according to the lottery’s website. Nobody got the $555 million jackpot which was one of the largest in the lottery’s history.
So, we will have another chance. Friday will be the next drawing and the estimated prize is $630 millions.
Four people or better saying four big winners drew the first five numbers, and another fifty-two luck winners matched the first four numbers and the Mega Ball.
The question now is: How much tax would you pay if you won $630 million Mega Millions Jackpot?
So you are all happy and are clapping your hands. Great! So is Uncle Sam.
Depending on where you live in the United States, your tax bill could be something around $150m if your numbers come up. And this is because gambling winnings of over $5,000 are taxable in the US and it is not only federal taxes, your state also may get a cut of it.
The next draw is schedule to take place at 11PM ET/8PM on Friday July 22. And if you get the six numbers correct, you will have two alternatives, annual payments or like the majority of winners tend to go for the lump-sum of $359.7 million, after that all the taxes will be applied and will end up with something around $227m.
